Following the results of my blood test last Friday T4 76.2, T3 38.5 and TSH 0.001 (undetectable) My GP referred me to the Endo with the letter market urgent.
Due to me going on holiday 13th next month and not knowing how long the NHS would take I booked a private appointment with an endo called David Scott Coombes for £150. I was told I had raging thyrotoxicosis and was prescribed carbimazole 40mg for 4weeks and then a maintenance dose of 20mg thereafter for approx. 12months then would be taken off and see how I respond (hope its better than I feel now)
I'm going for a blood test for graves on Monday and a further blood test in 6 weeks.
I have a SEN child 6yrs old so not much hope for rest.
Awful does not describe how I feel zero energy
I feel warm but at times cold to although my body is warm
headaches after taking carb
at times a awful feeling in my throat ......this happened before medication
Is it worth getting GP sending me for a vits and mineral test
any other meds I can take with carb
My main question will I feel well to go on holiday in just under 4weeks , if not will GP do a letter for insurance.
